Meet the Author

Jacqueline Grant's passions are history and writing. She spends most of her time researching books she is planning to write or actually writing them. She is currently working on her PhD in Caribbean and Latin American history so she does a fair amount of academic writing as well.

Jacqueline was born on the island of Jamaica and many of her stories are set in the Caribbean or have Caribbean themes. But she also writes about lots of other things and she's particularly fond of stories that help children see their value and stories that just plain make people giggle. She hopes you enjoy reading her tales.
